The Pale Masque minifig (Thunderhead Marauders)

Postby Morgan19 » Sat Jul 11, 2009 1:18 pm

This was made for Eurobricks' MCW contest, as the basis for a hypothetical steampunk/skypirate theme with a heavy fantasy/Medieval influence.

In short, Karrde's right. ;) The shield piece was originally transparent neon orange. I painted it all black, then added the bronze paint, then the silver.

That mini figure looks awesome! What type of paint did you use and are they brickforge weapons that the mini figure is holding?

The black is Krylon Fusion spraypaint; the silver and brown/bronze colors are Golden brand acrylic paints.

The spear and shield are actually painted MegaBloks weapons-- I found a ton of something called "Plasma Dragon" packs on clearance for $1 and each one has a bunch of interesting weapons like those. They're in obnoxious colors like trans-blue and neon orange, but they come out pretty nice once re-painted.

Since this figure uses paint, this discussion belongs in the Castle Customs section. I am moving it there.

The Marauder soldier helmet is inspired. That's a great way of thinking "outside the box".
